Your help promoting the Free and Open Source Outreach Program for Women
is welcome. We are looking for candidates to become full-time interns in
a Wikimedia tech project between December and March. We are also looking
for mentors and projects. See the details below.
Wikimedia chapters and other organizations can also help promoting this
program in their areas. So far the only countries with a slightly decent
representation of candidates are India and USA.

PLEASE FORWARD TO WHOEVER MIGHT BE INTERESTED
Wikimedia will participate in the FOSS Outreach Program for Women -
Round 7. Interns of this program work full time in an open source
project during 4 months.
Candidates interested are encouraged to add themselves to the table at
- even if you are still preparing your proposal.
We are actually running late (my fault). The application process is open
until November 11. The internship period goes from December 10 to March
The Wikimedia Foundation is planning to fund up to 8 interns. This is a
great opportunity for Wikimedia / MediaWiki related projects. Our
process is quite simple: define a project, find the mentors and go for it!
The previous featured projects and confirmed mentors have been moved
respectively to the Raw and Bench sections. If you want to participate
in this OPW round move the entries back to the featured sections.
New projects and mentors are welcome too, of course!
If you have any questions please ask.
